Congratulations to Ella Tederous, a student at St. Thomas School. Ella is the Grade 3-5 winner of the Diocese of Portland’s statewide Christmas Card Art Contest. Her winning artwork is pictured above. All Catholic school and faith formation students throughout the diocese were invited to participate in the contest. Over 300 submissions were received, each featuring original creations by the artists reflecting a passage from Scripture. In December, the winners’ creations will appear on the Christmas cards that will be sent to 2020 Catholic Appeal donors.
